Are you the owner of a car that keeps having the same problem, even though it’s been fixed multiple times by the dealership?

Am I Eligible for a Lemon Claim?
Not all cars are protected under the state’s lemon law. First and foremost, you must have purchased / leased your vehicle from a dealership or directly from the manufacturer. Second, your vehicle’s defect must be covered by the warranty, which means you have to take it back to the dealership or an authorized repair center. Then, you must give the manufacturer a reasonable number of attempts to rectify the issue, which is normally 4 attempts. However, the manufacturer gets no more than 2 chances if the problem is likely to cause injury or death.
If your car’s defect is not fixed after several attempts, and it’s serious enough compromise your vehicle’s usage, value, or safety, you can proceed with a lemon claim. You can also initiate a lemon claim if your car has spent 30 days or more in the repair shop for the same issue. This process is rather complicated, but we have lawyers who can walk you through the steps in Armenian. We are more than ready for the challenge of fighting for your rights and bringing you the payment you deserve.
Advice from an Armenian Speaking Lemon Lawyer
As you’re probably aware, car manufacturers are not in the business of losing money. These companies look for ways to cheat buyers out of the funds they’re entitled to. Consumers whose first language is Armenian are especially vulnerable, considering the laws are confusing enough for native English speakers. The truth is, dealerships will go out of their way to accommodate you when you’re buying a car. When you start having problems with it, they will most likely ignore you or attempt to mislead you on the available legal options.
That’s why it’s essential to seek out an attorney that can communicate with you in your preferred language. Your lawyer should have many years of experience in the recovery of lemon settlements. Our attorneys fit the bill in both of these categories, so you can count on them to settle your claim for highest possible amount.
Our attorneys, by the way, can assist you with lemon claims for just about any vehicle, including RVs, motorhomes, ATVs, boats, motorcycles, and commercial vehicles weighing less than 10,000 pounds if the business has no more than 5 cars registered in its name.

Compensation from a Lemon Lawsuit
Based on the strength of your evidence, as well as the skill of your attorney, you can receive compensation in various forms, most notably, a refund or a replacement vehicle. In addition, you can demand out of pocket costs, like towing fees and rideshare expenses due to your car’s issues. If you were in an accident that was caused by your car’s defect and suffered injuries as a result, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim. As you can see, there are many damages you can recover from a California lemon claim, so it’s essential to speak with our attorneys as soon as possible.
Lemon Claim Average Settlement Values
Many people assume that it’s easy to calculate the value of a lemon claim, since the biggest factor in your settlement is the price of your vehicle. But that’s far from the truth, as there are numerous incidental costs you may have incurred in your attempt to get your car back on the road. The most valuable cases are the ones that involve injury or death (personal injury or wrongful death claims). With these cases, you have to consider the victim’s medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages associated with their harm and suffering.
If we had to give an estimate, a lemon case will probably settle for around $25,000 to over $350,000. However, your case value may be lower or higher based on your losses, so it’s a good idea to discuss your case with an experienced attorney.
How long will it take to Settle my Case?
Ideally, we aim to settle all lemon claims within 3 to 6 months of filing the complaint. But that may not be a realistic timeline, depending on the complexities in your case and the manufacturer’s reluctance to work with us. As a general rule, complex lemon claims often involve accidents, and these cases may take one or more years from start to finish. We know this isn’t the best news, and ultimately, you get to decide on the legal actions we take on your case. Having said that, the manufacturer will try to settle your case for as little as possible. It’s our job to fight for the damages you deserve, thereby ensuring that you are justly compensated for your losses.
Deadline to File a Lemon Lawsuit in California
As with any legal action, you have a limited amount of time to file a lemon lawsuit in California. This period, known as the statute of limitations, is 4 years, starting from when you had reason to suspect that your car was a lemon. If you’ve spoken to the manufacturer, they may have tried to convince you that you’re ineligible for a lemon claim because your warranty ran out. This is not true, as long as the warranty was still in effect for the first repair attempt. However, it’s essential to file your claim as soon as possible, no matter how much time you have to pursue a lawsuit. If the statute of limitations passes on your case, that’s enough for the manufacturer to get away with selling you a lemon.
Do you need a Second Opinion on an Existing Lemon Claim?
It took you long enough to find an Armenian-speaking lemon lawyer, but now, you’re worried about certain issues in your case. Even worse, your lawyer is nowhere to be found whenever you call for answers or guidance. Luckily, you are never “stuck” with a lawyer in California, no matter where you are in the legal process.
